Those Little Black Clips That Hold Things Down on Your Car

Recorded on October 28th, 2016


In a Nissan Altima, a popular way to hold things down around the engine, under the hood, is these little black retainer clips. They’re like plastic pop rivets, I guess, and when you need to take them out to get to things (like headlight lamps), you invariably destroy them when you pull them out.

Amazon to the rescue! These 8mm nylon rivet clips are what you need. They fit perfectly to hold down a plastic piece behind the air dam of my car. And you get 40 in a bag for just a few dollars. I felt all self-reliant as I poked these back in where they needed to go yesterday.
